Blackboard Updates:

I will be (slowly) adding in all the OWL grades, every Friday-Sunday to keep your Overall Total Column as accurate as possible. The Overall Total Column is the grade you have in the course currently and is updated whenever a grade is put in.

Right now, I have posted the Lab Safety Quiz and ALL the Pre-Assignments, as well as HW 01-05 and will be stopping there until Friday. IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR GRADES IN THE OWL TOTAL COLUMN AND YOU DID THE ASSIGNMENTS FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING STEPS:

1. Check your OWL account to make sure you are in the correct section. If you are not, email [email protected] with the Title of the email: Change OWL Section and in the BODY of the email have your full name, the section you should be in, and if it’s the OWL Lab or OWL (homework) or Both that I need to change.

2. Check that you have your correct RedID as your Student ID on OWL. If this information is incorrect please update the information asap. Once you have updated your student ID then you may email [email protected] with the Title of the email: Updated RedID and in the BODY of the email: your full name and section number.

Note: If you do not know how to update your account please email OWL and not me. I do not work for OWL nor am I tech person.

I will be posting the rest of the assignments by Sunday night. Failure to fix your account before Friday will result in a delay in your Overall Total Grade being accurate.




The Final will be Saturday, May 5th from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm. I have posted the Sample Exams here on the website as well as on Blackboard. To check your answers please use the virtual scantron that is provided for that exam.

Final Room Assignments have been posted. Please make sure you attend the correct room for your exam.

What you need for the exam:

  1. Your RedID card.
  2. A Number #2 pencil.

Note: We will be providing the scantrons.

The online Quizzes are special assignments that have a time limit and you must complete them during a single session.

Technical issues during your quiz can cause you to lose points so here’s some tips to make sure your quiz sessions go smoothly:

-Use the Chrome browser. Although OWLv2 works on different browsers, most students experience the best results with Chrome.

-Be sure to have just ONE browser window/tab open when running the quiz. Having additional browsers windows or tabs open can cause issues.

-If your quiz “freezes” in the middle don’t panic. Simply close down the browser then re-open it and log in again. You’ll see a screen with a “Resume Assignment Now” button so you can pick up where you left off.
